Rollye James & Dave Bupp (lead singer of The Magnificent Men)

Hey Val,

I was chatting on the Northern Soul website. Your name came up and they sent me your e-mail address.
I just wanted to say hey brother!!! I think about you often, and your contribution to the World Of Soul.
You have always been one of my favorite people I ever met. There never was a question about your
love of black (and sometimes white) R&B. You did your job well, by keeping the music of the past alive.
I will be forever grateful for your support over these last 50 years. Glad to see you're still spreading the
good sounds of the world. Hope you're healthy and doing well!!!

Love Ya' Brother

Dave Bupp

Al Trommers - perhaps the first New York Group Record Collector.

He named the Lost Nite reissue label, then, along with Jerry Greene, Jared Weinstein
and Johnny Esposito purchased “There's a Moon Out Tonight” by The Capris
from Planet Records, reissuing it as their first release, Lost Nite 101 - then they leased it
to Old Town, where it went into the Top 5 nationally.
